Please contact your child’s teacher if you have questions about specific plans or call the office to book meeting times.
News from the Learning Commons
This week in the Learning Commons, students showed their ideas about the Surrey Schools Picture Book of the Year nominations. They used Chalkboard and Hello Crayon Apps. Students in Kindergarten to Grade 2 practised exporting their creations to the camera roll and uploading to DropBox. Brilliant!
New Student Registration
The Surrey School District is pleased to welcome all new students to our schools. In-person registration is required at the neighbourhood school or school of choice if space is available (see “Out of catchment registration” below).
The following documents are required at the school when registering:

4. proof of residency (purchase or rental agreement, cable, hydro or gas bill etc.).
The school district recognizes that personal circumstances may make it difficult for some individuals to complete the registration process. Please discuss any unique circumstances with the school principal when registering.
